Thanks for all that attempted guesses. Hopefully seeing these explanation will help for future attempts.

The solution is Walt Disney Company

Clues:
1 ESPN = Disney owns ESPN This also set the tone of sports related theme.
2. 4 = Disney was ranked 4th by Fortune list of world's most admired companies. Also 4th on Forbes list of world's best employer. This also continues a sports theme. Expected NCAAF championship of NCAAM final four.
3. Jackson Five Song = ABC which is another company owned by Disney
4. Fe = Felt answers were getting too obvious so had to be a little devious. This clue was to get you to Marvel which is owned by Disney. Fe is for Ironman. If you look back at the post it includes a few sentences. Included in there was the word marvel. This also led to several going for the Iron Bowl continuing the football theme.
5. Anaheim - Reference to the location of Disneyland. Was hoping the sports theme would continue with someone looking for #4 on the Angels or Ducks roster. Oh yeah the Mighty Ducks also were previously associated with Disney. Was also considering Orlando for this clue.
6. Subsidiary - This clue got you thinking about companies. Also the sentences on the post included several Pixar films. Pixar you guessed it owned by Disney.

I often comment that Amazon and Disney are taking over the world.

Oh, I was thinking "4" was for the four original "lands" at Disneyland:
Tomorrow Land
Adventureland
Frontierland
Fantasyland
